Stuck in the spray arm of the dishwasher!! I can see the little shits through the holes! Argh!

Dishwasher is not cleaning well at all and I have tried using one if those dishwasher cleaning bottle things. Sweetcorn still fucking there. DH will get toothpicks in the eyes for this.

Please tell me what to do to dissolve these little fuckers. Thank you. I'm unreasonably pissed off by this grin

I keep looking at it with a devils eye, trying to work out how to get the arm off. Do they all defo come off?

I once took the door off the tumble dryer to clean the fluff out properly! DH thought I was bonkers.

Mehfruittea you're my kind of woman! I hoover inside my dryer.. blush

I sometimes use those long black stiff but flexible zip ties, stick them in the holes.

look in the manual.
ours come off quite easily.

grin I also seriously considered putting the seat bit of the Ikea high chair in the dishwasher too.

I don't have the manual anymore. It's probably due to be replaced but I'm desperately trying to get a builder who will build me a new kitchen. Then I can get all new appliances!!

Will have a go tomorrow at trying to pop it off. Wish me luck!

Has loads of free instruction manuals - has been a lifesaver for us as our rental apartment came fitted with all white goods and no bastard Instructions...

On the back of this thread Am now absolutely Looking forward to dismantling and cleaning my dishwasher arms! grin

the whirly arms often screw off the wrong way, so not righty tighty, leftyloosey

sometimes they have little pinchy squeeze clips.

I hate winkling sweetorn out of dishwasher's like one of those horrible ballbearing in the dip games you used to get in christmas crackers

Once you've removed toothpicks from DHs eyes could you use them to hook out the sweet corn...or are they mush by now
